LLLC: Best Mate

There are clear stamps in this NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts as well! Wooo! I think the three sets are super cute. Today I’m going to show you the one called Best Mates.

For this release I’ve tried to make a variation of cards, so there are some CAS, some layered, some shakers, some with transparent areas etc. For this one I decided on a reasonably clean and simple card.  I’ve used the My Anchor background stamp to make the strip on the side, and the other background stamp, Seas the Day to make the biggest sentiment. All the animals have matching hats and uniform!

I’ve coloured up all the stamps in the set, as you can see below, just to give you an idea of how they can look.

Stamps:
Best Mates clear stamp
My Anchor background stamp
Seas the Day background stamp (bigger sentiment)

Dies:
Fishing Net
Long Flags

LLLC: Water Ripples

So, the NEW RELEASE stencils at La-La Land Crafts are so good! I really do love how you can use one over the other to get a cool effect. Let me show you!

Did you see my card yesterday with the see-through area? Well, I’ve made another! This time the water in the back is made with the new Water Ripples stencil! Which, btw, I absolutely love. Doesn’t it look so pretty? I only used two different colours of distress ink as well. Loving it!

I’ve used various stamps from the Jaws Because clear stamp set to add loads of sea creatures to the card. Most of the coloured images are on the front, and I’ve added most of the die cuts inside the card.

Here you can see the card at an angle, so it is easier to see how I have done the front part with the see-through area.

Jaws Because clear stamp
Make a Splash

LLLC: Summer Dress Marci

For this post I’m going to show you the super sweet Summer Dress Marci. She is part of the fabulous NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts. All the products I’ve used on my card are listed on the bottom of this post as well as which Copic Markers I’ve used to colour in Marci.

What I love about this new release is that it is perfect for my favourite colours! I’m talking blues and turquoise. I mean, what could possibly give me a better excuse to play with those colours than a maritime theme with focus on all things sea!?

Instead of using an actual charm, I’ve decided to hang the anchor on the twine, so it is dangling freely.  I’ve also used the My Anchor background stamp twice here, once where I used clear emboss and once with dark blue ink. Oh, btw, It is very easy to combine the ropes and knot dies, like I’ve done here, the ropes are also awesome to use as borders because the detail is great!

Stamps:
Summer Dress Marci
My Anchor background stamp

Dies:
Ropes
Knot
Long Flags
Heart Anchor
Fishing Net
Scalloped Rectangles

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, R20, R22, E25, (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, (dress) B000, B32, B34, B37

LLLC: Summer Dress Molli

So, I bet you know all about the NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts by now! I’m going to show you quite a few more projects I’ve made today and tomorrow, also.

First up today is another shaker card. This time I’ve used tiny glass pearls in the shaker area, and kept it small. Summer Dress Molli has been coloured in with no-lines technique and copics as usual and I’ve used loads of the new dies from this release. You’ll find a list of everything at the bottom of the post, and of course direct links to the products!

As most my cards yesterday were blue, I decided to go with teal, green and yellow as the combination for this. I’m not sure I’ve ever used that combination previously, but I really do like it! The paper I’ve used is by Poppydesign, and I’ve used a sail boat charm which I added on thin rope.
